About Us

Established in 1988, in the heart of Auckland’s historic Mt Eden Village, Time Out Bookstore is renowned for its excellent and eclectic books, occasionally weird window displays, haven-like children’s book room, and in-store cat.

Owner Wendy Tighe-Umbers, manager Jenna Todd, and a number of bibliophilic helpers - assisted by Lucinda the Tonkinese - will answer your questions, recommend their favourite books, and order for you any title that is not already on their shelves.

Not only helpful - Time Out is also award-winning - in 2010, 2011 and 2013, 2014 they were runner-up "Independent Bookshop of the Year" in the THORPE-BOWKER Book Industry Awards. In 2009 they were awarded the METRO Magazine Best Bookshop of the Year and the Penguin Independent Bookstore of the Year; and in 2004 they won the prestigious national "Independent Bookshop of the Year" award for "outstanding achievement in the New Zealand book industry" (THORPE-BOWKER Book Industry Awards).
